The ULTIMATE Burger!

I was watching Home for Dinner with Jamie Deen this weekend, and he was making the “Deen” burger. It was basically a burger with chopped onion added to the ground beef., along with some other fixins. I thought I would try adding the onion to my burgers the next time I made burgers. I gotta tell you, I’m sure glad I did!

First, you start off with some really good 80/20 ground beef from your local butcher. I took it two steps further, and added some sauteed green bell pepper, and a slice of Cabot’s Extra Sharp Cheddar cheese! Now that’s what I call the ULTIMATE burger. It was delicious!

The ULTIMATE Burger!

  • Author: A Foodie Affair
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 3 1x


Good ground beef, onion, sauteed green bell peppers, extra sharp cheddar cheese…need I say more?


  • 1 lb really good 80/20 ground beef
  • 1/2 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 green bell peppers, sliced
  • 3 slices Cabot extra sharp cheddar cheese


  1. Heat skillet on medium high. Add 2 Tbsp oil. Rinse, clean, and slice green bell pepper. Add to skillet and cook on medium high heat, until soft and cooked, stirring occasionally (approx 15 min).
  2. Heat grille, or grille pan. With about 1/3 lb of ground beef (or whatever size you choose), flatten and add some chopped onion. Without overworking, form in to a burger. Cook until desired doneness. Shortly before burgers are cooked, add cheddar cheese.
  3. Place burgers on buns, topping with sauteed green peppers.


Make sure to chop the onion real fine if you want them to cook inside the burger. Otherwise they’ll have a little crunch, but that’s OK too, in my opinion.
